Met League 5: Seniors

Bleak, muddy and brooding it might well have been. Freezing it certainly was. It was also buzzing, not least in anticipation of the England Athletics mystery gift for every Senior finisher, as this 50th season final fixture got underway.

Despite the minor earthworks going on around us, That Hill certainly hadn’t got any smaller since last time, as around 170 women lined up, stepped back, and set off for its greasy north face. We saved our best showing for last as seven Woodettes started the race: 3.7 miles in 2 identical laps - flat but for one steep, stepped climb up to The Palace and a swooshing downhill. Made nice and slippery after a wettish few weeks.

U11 Girls & U11 Boys are Met Champs

Alexandra Palace on Saturday provided the usual horrible weather we have come to expect - freezing cold, rain, sleet and even a bit of snow. This didn’t put our Young Athletes off one little bit and their performances did the club proud.

Woodford Success at West Essex Primary Sch CC

On an amazingly warm and dry Friday afternoon, primary schools from West Essex School Sports Partnership descended on the new venue of Chigwell Police Club for the West Essex Cross Country Champs, and an enormous crowd of parents friends and families turned out to see an afternoon of year 3 -6 racing.

Seeing John Stow there to support all his younger athletes, they all stepped up and gave amazing performances.
